Re: Yay, it's cheery Friday.

Note to Reg...whenever Amyl & The Sniffers has come on the radio recently, I think of you. What's that about? I don't even know you. It's a great song. Apologies for getting inside your head without permission Rapid :smile: I must admit that whenever Amyl is on the radio I think of..... er, wel...

Live Summer Solstice BaM In Progress! Sadly the only nude dancing at midnight will be in my head :sad: . Tour round the local woods.

Lentils are de rigueur, staple food for me as a veggie ... the ponytail can do one! Me too of course. And no chance of a ponytail for this proud slaphead :smile: .

Stayed there once about 35 years ago. Couple from up north had just taken it over, perfectly pleasant, nowt wrong with it, perhaps other than a "yuppie" makeover. But they renamed it "Brockweir Country Inn", as seemed to be a fashion at that time. I found it amusing that they tho...

After a couple of intentionally thought-provoking books, now onto Sean Ryder's 'How to be a Rock Star' which is surprisinly thought-provoking too.

Made the mistake of popping in to Eyam village shop on holiday. Very nice indeed. Even though I must admit I can't taste the rat flavouring.
